Very true Paul & thanks so much for your comments.  I think you and I may be
in the minority concerning our typing skills in keyboard mode (I feel quite
lucky in that regard).   I hear a few folks go to the paddles in the middle of
a contest Q to ask for a fill, etc. and the cw suddenly changes to garbage HI.

I have a VibroKeyer deluxe paddle which I use often on a 2 meter CW satellite
uplink and when I operate portable from a mountaintop QTH with the IC-706MKII.
The paddles are definately fun...and like you...I never want to loose my skill
of sending with them and get rusty.

Stay warm up there in ONT Paul.
